Meet the Barbies, Kens, and Allans of USGA!

To kick off the semester, USGA’s leadership came out in their best pink regalia for a night of introductions. Any excuse to dress up in a Barbie theme is a good one–and meeting USGA leadership was even better! For those who didn’t have the chance to come, here’s a little introduction to the Barbies, Kens, and Allans of USGA.

The presidency works to keep things running behind the scenes, as well as plan opening and closing socials. Their job is to make sure USGA runs like clockwork–ensuring that everyone in the leadership can be as successful as possible in helping USGA to fulfill its mission of being an inclusive and welcoming environment.

The projects committee works on communications, such as running the social media, writing and editing blog posts, and graphic design. This team works to keep you informed!

The community committee works to make sure that USGA is a safe space for all during weekly events. They plan fun, community-oriented activities focused on building relationships. The goal is to make the environment welcoming to everyone, no matter their race, gender, or sexuality.

The intersectionality committee strives to create activities that celebrate and educate on diverse voices and identities. Social categorizations such as race, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and many others have overlapping systems of discrimination and disadvantage. The goal of this committee is to help create allies for individuals who fall into these categories.

The history committee works to educate USGA members on the history of the LGBTQIA+ community, whether in our individual Provo community or on a global scale. The goal of this committee is to explore the rich history of activism, culture, and joy within the LGBTQIA+ community alongside USGA attendees.

The spirituality and wellness committee works to foster spirituality for USGA participants, however that looks. Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome.

The friends and allies committee works to improve the allyship of USGA participants throughout the Provo community. They work not only to help cisgender, white attendees to understand their roles as allies to others, but to help all attendees be better allies to each other within the Provo LGBTQIA+ community.

The student outreach committee reaches out to BYU students and others to encourage participation in USGA. They want to amplify diverse voices and assist local students through things such as weekly social media takeovers and the Queer Mentorship program.

All these committees come together to form a leadership committee that is dedicated to supporting you. USGA is all about queer joy–come participate in USGA to dance the night away every Monday and Thursday!
